    “Dear white people, a minimum requirement of black friends needed to not seem racist has just been raised to two.” That is opening line of a newly released trailer for Lionsgate’s upcoming film provocatively titled Dear White People — and by the looks of the snippet, it seems like a wittily-assembled film that packs a solid punch with a comedic blow. The film explores modern-day life in a “post-racial” America and how four black students at one predominately white Ivy League university express their racial identity. The preview in the trailer alone is…

    TweetThis time of year, we commemorate the famous speech “The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro,” written by Frederick Douglass and delivered in Rochester, NY on July 5, 1852. In this famous speech, Douglass says: “What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sound of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your…

    By Guest Contributor Keith Chow, cross-posted from The Nerds Of Color Earlier this week, Lucasfilm announced the addition of two more actors to the cast of Star Wars Episode VII. We do not yet know who the two relatively unknown actors — Pip Anderson, who’s British, and Crystal Clarke, who’s African American — will play in the movie, but I’m guessing their roles must be substantial enough to warrant a press release about their casting. If their characters are indeed prominent, Clarke will join John Boyega and Lupita Nyong’o in making this “the blackest Star…
  • Quoted: Police And Medical Teams During Eric Garner’s Last Moments

    Racialicious Team
    21 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    At one point, another officer is seen taking a cell phone and a pack of cigarettes from the 43-year-old Garner’s pants. Even after the arrival of an EMT four minutes into the video, no medical aid is provided to Garner. He’s instead just loaded onto a stretcher and wheeled off. Cops say he was pronounced dead a short time later after arriving at a Staten Island hospital. NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo, caught on another video putting Garner in a chokehold, is shown standing a few feet away and chatting amiably with a uniformed colleague. Near the end of the clip, he gives a satiric wave to…

      I’m typically not a huge fan of Morgan Freeman. (Most recently for his comments on those who are not for gay marriage. He posted on twitter: “I hate the word homophobia. It’s not a phobia. You’re not scared. You’re an asshole.” I could go on and on about how offensive and double standard that is. But I’ll save that for another rant. ) Anyway, I really admire Freeman for his opinion on racism as he believes the labels of “white” and “black” are obstacles to overcoming racism. While I believe it’s sometimes…

    I came home from work the other day and flipped on the TV, and saw the last half of the Maury Povich show. I’d never seen it before, and was actually surprised such a show would be allowed on TV. We live in a world where each minority group, special interest group or niche area of society has their lawyers on speed dial, ever aware of somebody that might, somehow hurt their delicate feelings. I have no idea why this show does not offend black people. Hour upon hour of Lamont denying he’s the father of Moquisha’s 4 kids. Needing DNA testing to confirm paternity. Did Lureen…

  • George Will, White Elites, Justify Use of “Redskins”

    4 Jul 2014 | 6:56 am
    TweetWhite elites who first developed the terminology of Indians, Savages and Redskins, are now desperately trying to justify that racist language. George Will has been the latest to weigh in on this defense of racial privilege and hegemony, while abusing the English language. In a column titled “The government decided ‘Redskins’ bothers you“,  Will arrogantly dismisses the controversy as the result of “some people” who are “professionally indignant” and chides what he sees as the overreach of government into being coercive “about wedding…

    Tweet Just weeks ago in Salt Lake City the national grading/reading of the Advanced Placement World History Exam became something of a playground for deeply rooted anti-Asian racism thinly veiled as “light-hearted” humor. Did you hear about this? Bet you didn’t. Because barely anybody did. A brave handful of graders who were there protested, but MANY more (graders and non-graders) pushed back with abusive online bullying and what’s-the-big-deal-this-isn’t-even-racist rhetoric. So far only Angry Asian Man and Hyphen Magazine picked up the story. No major networks found it…

    TweetToday is Juneteenth, a celebration of the end of slavery. As you may already know, the news of the Emancipation proclamation came late two months late to Texas, and the holiday is meant to mark the arrival of that news. What began as a regional celebration in Galveston, Texas has grown to a national commemoration. Yet, that celebration is a bittersweet one given what the reality of emancipation must have been, according to a new scholarly book.   (Emancipation Day, Austin, Texas, 1900,image source) According to a new book, Sick From Freedom (Oxford University Press), by Jim Downs…
  • To be Effective, Apprenticeship Programs Must Address Systemic Racism

    Tweet Beginning with his January 2014 State of the Union Address, President Barack Obama has repeatedly praised apprenticeships and vocational education when discussing the jobs crisis.  It is curious that the nation’s first black president is advocating for a policy that has been historically exclusive and harmful to African Americans. In his autobiography, Malcolm X recounts telling his middle school English teacher of his aspirations to be a lawyer and the teacher advised him to instead become a carpenter. The astute Malcolm noted the stark contrast between the advice he received…

    Today is a very sad day for journalism in Danbury...and local reporting will NEVER be the same. Last night, while covering the budget fiasco in Bethel, I learned that three well-respected veteran journalists, Eileen Fitzgerald, John Pirro, and Bob Miller, are leaving the Danbury News-Times at the end of the week. Words can not express how sadden I am to hear that three remarkable and irreplaceable writers will be no longer working for a newspaper which is more known for their ever-shrinking coverage of local news in Greater Danbury. When it came to educational matters or coverage of events in…
